Delve into the centuries-old sound art of Bali and Java – with gongs, metallophones and drums.
Gamelan music originated many centuries ago on the Indonesian islands of Bali and Java. It is always played in a group, on gongs, metallophones, drums, xylophones, flutes and stringed instruments. The unique sound of a gamelan ensemble fascinated the composer Claude Debussy, and still has many fans in Europe. The Elbphilharmonie owns a particularly beautiful ensemble of gamelan instruments, which participants can explore in a one-day workshop.
Please note: The workshops scheduled for 2020/21 cannot go ahead as planned because of the coronavirus pandemic. There will be no workshops in season 2020/21.
